Voters listened. They spoke. Three times they gave Republicans a majority in the House to repeal Obamacare. Twice voters gave Republicans a majority in the Senate to repeal Obamacare. Then one time Donald Trump spoke to voters much like this past week he talked to fifty-five Arab leaders in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia reminding them about their very important responsibilities they have neglected for far too long. To voters before election day in November candidate Trump said:
It is a choice between two futures—and it is a choice I CANNOT make for you.
Voters listened. They elected Mr. Trump, a Republican, President of the United States of America. Then they waited. They waited for promises to be kept, such as these promises: Obamacare will be repealed. The Paris Climate Accords will be abandoned. The war on coal will end. The pipe will be built. Free markets will return bringing “Jobs, Jobs, Jobs.” His voters continued to wait, patiently, until it became evident politicians in Congress had long ago formed sleeper cells for just such a time as Trump, cells of establishment politicians from both parties that voters are realizing need to be driven out of our most revered industries and institutions: our healthcare mosques, our energy temples, and our free markets.
For America’s hospitals, health institutes, research and development firms, pharmaceutical companies, physicians, and nurses were lauded around the world until politicians conspired with one Mr. Gruber to create one-size-fits-all government run healthcare while secretly on their way to the socialist's Mecca: single payer. America’s energy prowess was indomitable until politicians hysterically screamed the climate is changing, the climate is changing while they slyly diverted the media’s attention away from real threats to our nation’s security and economic interests. And America’s free markets for more than a century have been under assault by radical Marxist extremists who make very serious charges that must be investigated, accusing Americans of selfishness and theft, lobbing income redistribution, income inequality grenades at will at America’s workers.
In Brussels President Trump stared down twenty-three of twenty-eight NATO member leaders for not paying their own military defense bills, for depending on others, US taxpayers in particular, to foot the bill. Oh that he would in like fashion regale his NATO speech to our duly elected duplicitous politicians in Congress. He might say:
Congress, not all of you cherish America. In fact, most of you are more worried about 2018 than you are about America’s future. I’ve come to ask those of you who do love America to unite in finding, exposing, and removing the politicians among you, those willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for 2018 but not for their country. They are losers -- yes, losers. These politicians are losers. [I won’t call them The Establishment because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name.] Wherever they exist in Congress, we must drive these losers out and never, ever let them back in.
Of course journalists, masters of The Art of Insinuation, will ridicule a NATO-like speech to Congress. They will call it impudent, snively, childish, brutish, and crude; the work of a beginner who will never measure up to the demands of his office or the challenges of a pell-mell showboat Congress on its way to Utopia. Time sensitive, that’s what the media thinks of America, over, done with, along with the Constitution and its Bill of Rights. They assert the world is much smaller these days. We must be global now.
The message congressmen must hear is summed up within their oath of office. Those unwilling, incapable of observing their oath need to be driven out. Rights of individuals across the country need to be respected, especially private property rights, because that right in large measure sums up most all the other rights, much like the Golden Rule is the Cliffs Notes of sixty-six books of the Bible.
Trump’s speech should not only be intended for Congress. Gary Cohn, his director of The White House National Economic Council needs to hear it; for while aboard Air Force One he announced a revitalization of Obama’s “War on Coal.” Miners and mine owners posses unalienable private property rights loser politicians have no powers to abolish, that states also lack powers to limit. Miners own the skills they learned and inherited from many successive generations of able masters of their trade. Mine owners certainly own what they have paid for or inherited.
Trump’s speech should also be aimed at those outside of government, at those with a seemingly unchallenged influence on millennials, at Mark Zuckerberg in particular who is pushing for adoption of a Universal Basic Income. His is just one more diversion, one more piece of legislation the loser cells in Congress will value because twenty-three out of every twenty-eight of their members are most concerned about 2018, 2020, and 2022.
